Oh, YUM! Lemon Blackberry Infused Water

I have a new favorite beverage:  lemon blackberry infused water.

Oh, it is so YUM!

I remembered my daughter got me a six-pack of Perrier (“Momma’s treat water’) for Christmas the other day.  It wasn’t cold and I don’t really like it over ice (not sure what that’s about).  I spied some frozen blackberries in the freezer so I threw those in my cup and filled it up with Perrier.

Then I added some fresh lemon, since I happened to have some available.

Fancy schmancy, right?

I thought so.

But before I could take a sip, my sweet daughter walked through the kitchen and stole it.

Yup, she likes Perrier, too.

I let her get away with it and made myself another glass.

It was delicious – even taking away some of the pain sitting with my husband and daughter while they watched “Space Balls”…again.

When I was finished sipping it, I ate the blackberries and then made another!

But this time I used flat water, straight from the tap.

The frozen blackberries cooled it down quickly.

And I found I actually preferred it with the flat water instead of the bubbly.

We all know water is really important for our bodies. The Mayo Clinic recommends at least eight glasses a day for proper hydration.

This is easy for me to do because I am a water drinker.  In fact, it’s rare I drink anything else, even at restaurants.

But that wasn’t always the case.  I had to get myself into the habit of reaching for water instead of soda, tea, juice, lemonade, etc.

Now I prefer water.

But, for a change of pace,  I prefer fruit infused water even more!

If you aren’t a water love, try adding some fresh fruit to a pitcher of it and keeping it in the fridge.

Here are some ideas:

  • Lemon
  • Orange
  • Lime
  • Cucumber
  • Fresh mint
  • Strawberry 
  • Blueberry
  • Watermelon
  • And any other fruit you like!

Try a combination of a couple fruits.  A hotel I was at a few months ago had watermelon mint infused water in the lobby.  It was delicious!

The lemon blackberry infused water is also especially good.  I’ve been making fresh batches all week.
